How nutritious is almond milk-I LOVE it!
Also, since it is the milk of the almonds-what about fat and calories?

Almond milk is super nutritious. It has a high content of digestible protein, fatty acids and minerals.
I wouldn't worry about the fat and calories too much. This is fat that the body wants and can use. When I make almond milk I drink about a cup in a day. That's plenty since it's very filling.

When you make almond milk, how much of the leftover almond pieces do you have to strain? I think I don't have a very good blender because I had to strain a LOT!

There shouldn't be almond pieces, it should just be like a pulp that you squeeze the liquid out of with a strainer bag.
What kind of blender do you have and how long did you let it run? You have to let it run for a while too. But not so much that it gets hot.

I have a magic bullet. I kept running it, but it seemed like the almond pieces were just floating around and not getting blended.

It doesn't sound like it's doing the job then. I guess it's not the thing to use for nutmilks. :( That sucks.

I have a magic bullet too and I have made almond milk, sesame seed and brazil nut milk with mine. I have the paint strainer bags from Home Depot and I used that to strain with. I let the nuts and water run for about 10 sec. at a time until the nuts becomes fine. I use less water than nuts so the nuts won't "swim" around and not become chopped. I proceed to strain and add flavor to the milk. I then dehydrate my pulp and it becomes sand/salt like in texture. I like the milk. For the time being, this is what I do and I will get a high speed blender in the near future. I hope this helps. Good Luck!!!!
